Crochet Newborn Booties Pattern

Crochet Newborn BootiesAs you can probably tell from the picture of these crochet newborn booties, they are extremely warm. (I tested by putting half my hand in there.) 🙂 If they were big enough I’d get my big foot in them!

Bubs will love the warmth and comfort from a pair of these snug booties so I hope you enjoy making them as much as I do. I have made truck loads of them!

1 ball of 8 ply Yarn or Medium Worsted Weight Yarn – I use Bamboozle Bamboo Yarn

I needed to make some baby gifts quick and I found what I needed in this book with bootie patterns to crochet for both boys and girls.

I intend to use it to keep gifts on hand so I will be prepared next time. I love the choices.

      Can you please send me a copy of easy baby booties …the white and blue easy one.
      cant print…Ive watched the tutorial but i need the written instructions because I am not
      as fast as you are.

      Mrs. Geralyn

      • Paula says:

        Hello Mrs. Geralyn,

        I have emailed you the pattern. I hope you enjoy making them.

  2. Luce Strobo says:

    Hi, this is a great post! Thanks..

  3. Kelly says:

    Hi Paula
    Thanks for the great tutorials on Youtube. They are super easy to follow and not to fast for this beginner. Keep up the great work!!

    • Paula says:

      That’s great to hear Kelly! Thank you very much. 🙂

  4. nitya says:

    hi..I’d like to stitch these newborn booties but i don’t have a 3mm hook size. Instead I have a G/6-4.25mm hook. Is that ok for this? Do I have to add or decrease any stitches by using this hook?

    • Paula says:

      Hi Nitya,
      Yes, you can use a 4.25mm hook, I have before and the booties come out fine. I’d suggest using a category 3 lightweight yarn if you use the 4.25mm crochet hook because then you won’t have to add or decrease stitches.

  5. Meenu says:

    Hi Paula.

    First of all, I loved your tutorial of “how to chrochet newborn baby booties”. It was so easy and so fun to follow. I made one pair as similar to yours by following your tutoral. They looks very cute. So, thank you so much for that.

    But one thing I wanted to ask you. What if I want to crochet some booties for a 2 year old boy. How many hooks should I have on my pin or how long a chain should it be? Do you hvae a similar crochet tuorial of booties for 2 years old boys?

    Keep your good work. I wish for some more of your videos.

    Thank you so much for your help.

    • Paula says:

      Hi Meenu,

      Thank you, I’m glad you had so much fun making my newborn baby booties. I love this pattern too and have made so many!

      At the moment I don’t have any patterns for 2 year old boys but I will definitely put it on my to-do list to make a pattern and tutorial.

      Thank you for your support.

  6. Nana Popa says:

    I know how to crochet, but have not done anything in 20 years. My daughter in law expecting my first grandson in 7 weeks and she wants booties. Tradition was, her mother always made booties for the grandchildren, but sadly she is gone now. Homemade mean so much more. Stitches of Nanas love! Just curious if I spend an hour a day, how long to finish, as I NEED SOON! LOL! Thank You!

    • Paula says:

      Hi Nana Popa,

      I would say that if you follow the video tutorials then you would get a pair of these booties done faster if you haven’t crocheted in awhile. But even if you just follow the written pattern, each bootie could possibly take you a few hours. 7 weeks is definitely enough time to have them done! lol 🙂 All the best with your new grandchild and yes I agree, homemade is better.

  7. Diane says:

    These are soooo cute. Thank you for the pattern. I’ll be making a pair for my dear friend’s first grand baby! Can’t wait to get started!

    • Paula says:

      Thank you, Diane! When you finish them share a picture of them on the Crochet Hooks You Facebook Page so we can all see them! 🙂

  8. Michelle says:

    Hi… Can you give a pattern of the second one that Neha made…pretty please.. I want to made a pair if those to give this Xmas… Thanks in advance… God bless you

  9. Alice says:

    I love the baby booties you made. I love crocheting and I will appreciate it if you could send me instructions for the patterns. Are they free?

    Thanks a lot.


    • Paula says:

      Thank you, I’m glad you love crocheting, me too! 🙂 All patterns on my website can be printed through the Print Icon at the bottom of each pattern page.

    could you send me a copy of this pattern. THANK YOU

      Hi Pammy,
      There is a Print button at the bottom of each pattern so you can print the pattern straight away.

  11. Melissa says:

    Hi Paula,

    I am so happy to have found your tutorials! I’m now following you on Facebook too. Many thanks for the amazing work. I just made these adorable newborn booties (ill send you a pic), but they are a bit too small as my baby keeps growing so fast :). As a new crocheter, this might be a silly question; but I was wondering how to use this same pattern, but make different sizes? Would I increase the hook size, or use a chunky yarn, or both? I’m hesitant to add stitches, as this might make them too big or affect the pattern. Any advice would be awesome! My daughter is 3 months (but I wouldn’t mind them being a bit big so they will last longer). Thanks Paula, keep up the great work!

    • Paula says:

      Hi Melissa,
      I’m happy you found my tutorials too! Thank you for following on facebook. I’d love to see your picture of these booties you’ve made! To make the next size up try using a 4.0mm crochet hook using the same yarn and you don’t need to change the pattern at all. Let me know how you go!

  12. karli says:

    Thanks for the pattern!! I tried this and I got a slightly bigger size of bootie… so I’ll follow it again, I am bad at counting stitches! I had a question, I’m new to reading patterns, how do you know when to only stitch in the back loop versus stitch through both loops when it’s not explicit?

    • Paula says:

      Hello Karli,
      You are welcome. You’ll get better at counting stitches the more you do it. 🙂 You only stitch into back loops when it states in for that row or round. Otherwise, all other rows and rounds are done as normal (through both loops).

      Always take a look at the pattern notes too before starting because it may state something different like ‘work into back loops for all rows or rounds’.

      Hope this helps you out.

  13. karli says:

    Thanks for the tips!! I finished your pattern and the booties look so cute. I used Petal Pink RHSS yarn and I will give them to my friend for her new baby girl. Really love your site… really helped a beginner like me!!

    • Paula says:

      Hi Karli,
      You’re welcome! I hope your friend’s little girl loves her new booties! And that’s great that you love my site, I’m happy I can help others to crochet.

  14. paméla says:


    I only have 2.5 hook and ball of wool size also.
    How can I convert to have the right size of boots?

    Thanks a lot by advance

    best Regards

    • Paula says:

      Hi Pamela,

      I’m not too sure, it’s probably just easier to use what I have used in this pattern to be sure that you get the right size bootie.

  15. Kellie says:

    love these!! would you have the pattern for a bigger size? i have a 5 mth old and would love to make some of these for winter this year. 🙂


    • Paula says:

      Hi Kellie,

      If you just use a 5.0mm hook you will get the size you are looking for and you can use the same pattern without having to change it.

  16. Sherri says:

    My daughters hockey coach has a new baby boy. I would love to make the little hockey skates for him. Do you have any idea how I would do it? I love your pattern for the booties!

    • Paula says:

      Hi Sherri, I’m really glad you love my pattern. I’m sorry but I haven’t designed any hockey skate booties myself so I don’t know how to do that at this time.

  17. Jodie says:

    Hi, I use a lot of your patterns and find them really easy to use. I only have one little problem, I have to use a hook one full size bigger to get the same length as you. But since working that out, I can make them very easily . Thank you so much for sharing your talent.

    • Paula says:

      Hi Jodie, I’m happy to hear you find my patterns easy. Thank you for leaving your comment, it’s much appreciated. 🙂

  18. Dianne Mitchell says:

    I am absolutely in LOVE with the newborn booties pattern!! It’s everything you could want….easy, fast & no seam sewing required. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing it.

  19. gail vee says:

    Just finished your Crochet Newborn Booties along with your tutorial on YouTube. I like the pattern at the top of the page to follow along. I learned to crochet by reading a pattern and this was very helpful in making these booties. Thanks for sharing your tutorials. Keep up the good work.

    • Paula says:

      Thank you very much for your positive feedback. I really appreciate it!! 🙂

  20. Denise says:

    Thank you so much for this pattern, this was my first attempt at booties(most patterns intimidate me too much to try). I made a pair in about 2 hours, this included watching a few of the videos because I couldn’t figure out a couple stitches. They turned out great! Thank you again for sharing.

  21. azlina says:

    Hai paula,

      Hello Azlina, I’ve just updated the print button so you should be able to print the pattern out now.

  22. Lisa says:

    Paula, I cannot thank you enough for your tutorials. Ive just made my brand new niece these booties and your instructions are by far the easiest and clearest to follow that I have ever seen! I also made a matching beanie. I love this page and your channel!
